C- Candy Crush


Print


How many of you were addicted to it or still are and have killed your precious hours on this revolutionary game? I, for one, haven’t wasted a single second on it.

Yes... we do exist!

The way Facebook has been accepted worldwide, Candy Crush Saga has been equally sensational. So much so that I thought of it being declared as the National Game of the country! :P

And the instances of people being glued to their phones are hilarious.

So a friend of mine was sharing the Candy Crush story of his mom. When his mom learned to play that game, she was so lost in her phone that she ignored every damn thing in her life! Office work, daily chores, social gatherings, everything!

Once my friend was awake until late night and came out of his room around 3 in the morning. He saw a flicker of light coming from his parents’ room and wondered if everything was okay. When he opened the door, it was mostly dark. His father was having a sound sleep, while his mom was missing. This worried him a bit. He started calling out her without letting his father get disturbed. 

And as he approached towards the light (which was coming from the bathroom), he was left aghast! His mom was sitting on the floor with the lights on, playing Candy Crush!!

What is wrong with you, mom!? It’s 3 in the morning!!’

Well... Things people do to play Candy Crush, I tell you!

But that’s not why I chose to write on this topic. There is more to it.

I know a lady... or let’s just say lots of ladies, whose bodies are exhausted after finishing the household work, that all they feel is lie on the bed and have some rest. While doing so, they don’t sleep immediately, though. They have this urge to talk, to share things, to let someone know how exhausting their day was, how nasty the kids got in the evening and the likes.

And in the plethora of these thoughts, she sees her phone! Tempting, eh? Of course, (most) husbands don’t talk much to their wives. And the irony is there are hundreds of contacts in the phone, and yet not a single person whom they can call at an odd hour! Well, that’s the beauty of getting involved in your house altogether! Pun intended!

And the only rescue to free your mind, to get over with the chain of thoughts, to have that ‘me’ time, to put your mind apart from breakfast, lunch or dinner, to feel refreshed again is none other our very favourite... Candy Crush Saga!

And then they get judged for it too! Kids make fun of their moms, saying they’re glued on their phones all the time and don’t look after them, husbands start getting pestered because for once, wife is giving more importance to something else than them, the house management too gets suffered sometimes, but then if those few minutes turned into hours (:P), give them so much peace then so be it! There’s no harm in that.

One shouldn’t be judged for playing Candy Crush, what say you CC lovers?

What do you think? I’m sure not everyone would agree but you’re free to express your thoughts and let me be a part of it!

P.S: Sorry for making it so long! Couldn’t trim more! :D

Cheers

  2. I used to be a bit of CC addict, but I noticed that when I closed my eyes in bed I could still see all those little shapes and colours and figured I needed to stop spending so much time on it!

  3. Hehe. I was so addicted to this game once. It was my study holidays and instead of reading I went on playing the game. It was like I had to finish this level, then the next and the next..... The addiction broke however after the exams were over. Now I wonder if it was really the game that was addicting or the study holidays playing its part!!

  4. I wasn't much of a Candy Crush addict. When it comes to phone games, I'm not half as ambitious as most people. I can't be too bothered.

    I love your take on "the other side" in this post. Kinda feel sorry for those lonely women. If only our phones had contacts we could dial at any hour instead of these games, isn't it?

    1. Me too! I don't play games at all! I know how addictive they get! I believe in killing time by watching an interesting sitcom!
      Thanks a ton, Sreesha! I'm glad you liked it! Hope to see you around!

  5. Lol geetika, guilty of being addicted to this game. Not sure why though, but it would often serve as a stress buster for me. Would end up with a splitting headacheat night, yet the next day would be back at the game.

  8. Should admit, I haven't tried Candy Crush even once. Farmville was something I was addicted to long back.

  9. I have played FarmVille non-stop for 3 years. I was rather addicted to it and would wake up at odd hours of the night to harvest the crop and would be glued to my laptop at all hours and would sneak in and play it from my friend's computers when we were socializing and at their homes. And then I quit it one day, just like that and realized the amount of time I had to do constructive things. After that no addictive games for me. I was pushed and 'motivated' a lot by a few friends to play Candy Crush, but I didnt give in and I am really glad. Games like CC, FV are really time suckers and you simply become slaves to these games.

    1. Non-stop 3 years!!! Are you kidding me? That's the longest I've heard for any game!! You had some serious self-control for not starting with Candy Crush!

  10. Never played CC. I avoid these games like the plague after playing farmville for a while. Got bored with it though.

  11. While I didn't play candy crush itself I was addicted to similar games with some other names. Now, I think that phase has gone for me. Haven't checked a game on the mobile in a year atleast.

  13. I haven't played candy crush myself but I don't judge people for playing it. To each his own I say.

  14. Same pinch! I haven't ever played candy crush but I have had tons of friends who have been like your friend's mom, playing candy crush into the wee hours of the morning like their life depended on it!!

  16. I played it a bit but didn't really get hooked on to it. It's still a better game than Pokemon because you still need some skills! :P

  17. Ha ha! I was a candy crush lover but not anymore. Sometimes games are a stress buster and this one had the powers to take my mind of everything. So give it to the game for this skill ;)

  22. Oh dear, I have seen so many ladies play Candy Crush while travelling by train! They judge me for sitting without using my phone, while they play levels and levels of match-3 during their daily commute. Sometimes I wonder who is the wiser person out here!

  23. It's a bad addiction, I have seen people playing at almost the smallest break they get in my office, people playing while waiting, one housewife sat after finishing her work to talk to her neighbourhood friend who came over and both chatted along side played candy crush too :) :)

  24. I never play any games on my mobile. Somehow could never stand the thought of it. May be due to the sight of ppl who seem totally engrossed in their phones even when they have a hearing ear.

    But your take is also cool.

  25. Your post reminded me of my hubby who loves playing candy crush and I should say he is addicted to it. And agree so many more people are addicted too. It is fun but it should not become a habit.

  26. Geethika, I love Candy Crush and yeah have indulged in it for long. When I get stuck at some super hard level i stop playing for sometime. My son who is one and a half tries to play it too - i guess he likes all the colors.

  27. Me too! Never wasted a single second on Candy Crush. Well, that is because I was a Farmville addict. I used to plant and water them regularly, had many farm animals, built stables, bought new houses! Oh, reminds me! It has been ages since I played it. I should get back to it right? :)
    Lovely post. And yes, if the lady of the house wants to play, so be it!
